Judy, Judy, Judy.....just hold your horses lady ....I have to go look through all my photo albums first....spent the morning running around town finding some cheap ribbon to make 120 sets of suspenders for the oompa loompa....finally the very last store I found some that's working and not going to cost me my right arm and its 2 1/2 inches wide and splits in half beautifully !
so guess what Megan's helping me do part of the weekend, yup help cut lenghts of ribbon and I'll do the splitting to make each pair and have to make somemore of the paper buttons, the teacher miss counted how many kids are oompa loompas, so need another 60 cut

Heading to my Mom's but chekcing in before we leave....WHAT horses am I supposed to hold??? THESE???


First, they are too big for me and second the pics I said I wanted to see of yours, you can't post (of the show)! You MUST stop talking on the phone, texting and DISing at the same time, you are missing words my sweet!

Of course it could be the madness of all the ribbon shopping...

Andrea, I love how you have the kids pose with their "halloween" buckets to throw us off that they dress up every day....but if I had a mom who could create outfits like you I'd do the same


so tested out the ribbon and the safety pins (to attach to the kids shirts) split the ribbon...tried a couple different things to stop the splitting and duc tape works...but I have yellow, so need to get some white so it doesn't show...another step, but still much cheaper than some of the other options we thought about

Try white electrical tape...Home Depot or somewhere similar should have it, and it is 1" wide so you won't have to cut it down to size :-)

ROFL... And she just lives vicariously through her children - we all know that it's really Andrea that wants to wear the costumes... She probably does, but doesn't show us.

we are heading off to the zoo today, the sun is shining and supposed to be 70 so a wonderful day!

going to stop and leave flowers for Jim and my daddy on our way down and stop to pick up the rest of the ribbon and tape to work on the suspenders.


remember those who have gone before us and hold your loved one's close this weekend

That's right! DH was elusive when we had our meet in MN too!

And Yay!!! I get to post pictures of ME in Isa's PTR....

For those of you that don't know me - I am D~... And I get blamed for any and all mischief around here (really it's Isa, Judy and Andrea that cause it all)... I will be flying from MN to Charlotte this summer, and I am super excited to be meeting most of my Diser buddies... This is just going to be an awesome trip, and I am so excited about it.

WHile I am there, Marianne (and Judy) offerred to let me stay with them, but since Judy already has Isa & Megan staying there, I will be staying at Marianne's. Marianne and I have already met IRL last summer - she was lucky enough to get a layover at MSP - so my bff and I drove up to meet her... We had so much fun and we've become fast friends. I've even met her adorable boys... I am super excited to see them again too.

I have a DH and 2 girls (Allison & Victoria) who will be staying home... This will be my first trip ever with out any of my family - and my first time flying alone... but after a few flights to WDW & back and trip to Europe last summer (exactly a year ago - can you believe how fast time flies?) - I think I can handle a solo flight.

Anyways - here's me with my girls on our recent trip to WDW...



I am super excited to be part of this amazing group of ladies - who have hearts of gold, and their spirit adds so much fun to my daily live - I am super excited to meet each and every one of them!!!

D~
I can't wait!!!! Remember, you can always fly into RI and drive back to Charlotte with me . . . just extend your trip a bit

And "Hi D" -- blaming Isa, Judy and me already???? Everyone knows "mischief" is your middle name.
I thank you for your kind words. . . sadly, I think your eyes would be surprised if you saw a pic of me today . . . I think I have GAINED weight (that's what a month of migraines and nasty allergies will do to you - I ate and didn't have any energy to go to the gym) Phalen & I are starting Couch to 5k tomorrow morning.

Um . . . get ready, because we're here! And we're here until August 13th, so I'm hoping I get to see you LOTS!!!!!

I actually might have to do that but I still need to talk to DH about it. If I try and schedule it around one of the race weekends he will come with me. Yes we are Nascar fans..

I am working on a plan to fly in Thursday or Friday and leave Sunday afternoon. I need to figure it out because it is a commuter flight on US Air.
Oooh!!!! When???

Great pic! I love your dress!!!!


Well, as I mentioned above, the boys & Mimi & I arrived in RI at 5:45 tonight. We left Charlotte last night at 11pm and I drove from exit 80 on I-77N in NC until the 1st Cracker Barrel in PA on I-81N. . . which we arrived at about 6:30am. From there my mom & I switched off a lot . . . it just took FOREVER to get here Oh well . . . we're here, and here in time for the big Memorial Day Parade so the boys can ride on the firetruck in the parade with their cousins!!!
I won't go back to Charlotte until the week of our DISMEET!!! We have family and friends coming at all various times to RI this summer, so it just made more sense to be here so we could see everyone (and DH has to work 6 days a week this summer, so we'd never see him even if we were home in CLT).

did get about 1/3 of the suspenders cut, etc yesterday and my cleaning done too

hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend

^ That's an awesome ticker you have there Amy!

Lisa - I hope you are able to find a parking spot at the zoo today.

Marianne - I am relieved to know you made it to RI. That would be fun to fly into RI to meet you... I wish I could take that much time off of work and sewing... I guess I could bring Patience and hand crank her in the car on the way. Shrug... HOw did the C25K go yesterday? I am anxious to hear all about it.

D~ <--- who really can't cook - so there's no pot stirring here... Not sure what you all are talking about?

D~ you don't need to "cook" to you know we you

Yes we found a parking spot, we left early at 9, so the parking lot was pretty empty......felt like we had the zoo to ourselves for a bit...was cute watching the little kids react to the animals, miss those days when Megan was little...

our favorite moment was with the orangutan's...when we walked up there were two zoo tour guides talking and one of the orangutan sitting up by the glass...she tapped on the glass and the guide said she loved ears...so we put our ears against the glass and she would look, then tap the glass to see the other one......she kept tapping until she looked at all four of our ears...she really liked mine since I had earrings! was so fun to have that interaction.

we had lunch there and were home about 1, did a load of and cut somemore of the suspenders.

got the rest of my going, will keep working on the suspenders,need to cut some more button and hope to work on some swap stuff today....

decided to stay home and have a PJ day

enjoy the day everyone!

C25K went well. . . let's see how we do again tomorrow. . . and talk about a total motivator - a childhood friend lost 50lbs in the last year by walking and controlling her diet. . . she looks AH-MAZ-ING!
